by lawsuits because they may not necessarily be catering to same-sex marriages. saw this over in new mexico with elaine photography when a photographer said i don't care to photograph same-sex marriage ended up being sued. this lawsuit is still going on right now. >> jimmy williams, welcome back. just explain to me. i'm sure there's a logic to it. i always look at these things as social issues. i wish they were decided at the state level and not the federal level. why is this not decided at the state level? why must this go to the supreme court for a constitutional decision? >> well listen, i think if we look back at the history of this country when it comes to the issue of equality, would you ask the state of mississippi in 1960 whether they thought equal rights for african americans was something they should decide on solely? or do you think that was a national issue? i don't think there's anybody today that actually thinks that equal rights for anybody in this country should have been divided by a bunch of racists in the 1960s. or from my home state in south carolina. when you're talking

his business partner died, dejoria discovered a new path. a friend had brought him tequila from mexico. >> and he brought back a couple bottles of this un-descript tequila i've never heard of before in my life -- simple tequila, but smoother than anything we've ever tasted. >> a mexican distiller named francisco alcaraz claimed he could make that tequila even smoother. dejoria believed him and had him make a thousand cases of it. they called it patrón. >> and, worst scenario, that if nobody bought it from us, that friends for ten years, you know, for any holiday, would have a bottle of tequila. >> the bottles were hand-blown by mexican artisans and each hand-numbered. the tequila was made more slowly and in small batches, so it was priced much higher than existing brands. in fact, patrón was the first premium tequila in a spirit category that didn't have one, so john paul found himself in a familiar position. how do you get skeptical customers to try it? >> i learned how to sell door-to-door when i sold encyclopedias, no appointments. when i started paul mitchell, it was salon to sal

nine auto plants in mexico, but nissan, honda, mazda and audi will be opening new plants. bmw has. crazy, huh? bmw. over the time frame, mexican auto production is expected to surge from 2.5 million vehicles a year to 3.5 million. i think that's low versus what will ultimately be. and kansas city southern and kansas city southern believes they will have 60% market share. kansas city southern should benefit from the auto rebuild that's needed in the wake of hurricane sandy. can't get this stuff to america fast enough. united states fast enough. thanks to the strength of the economy, the increasing volumes with declining costs. the gross margins are expanding. how much do we love that in a rail? however, the auto industry only affects about 18% of kansas city southern's revenues. they do have some coal exposure, something that's crushed a great many american railroads, we know that because we have backed away from a lot of rails because of the coal. but they have something the other railroads don't have, consistently high growth, not that low single digit stuff and not susceptible t

'll give maria and bill more clarity on her call today. >> the spotlight today, after "the new york times" prints a second article about the company's practices in mexico in the 2000s. extensive bribery in 19 stores. chief international correspondent has more on this. >> thank you very much, melissa. all right. this new article, like the one that was first coming out, the reporters paint a picture of pervasive alleged bribery. they found clear patterns during the construction of those 19 different stores in the country, specifically multiple instances that when a payment was made, the critical permit was issued. the article, however, focuses mostly on the most controversial walmart store in mexico which was built in 2004, where the "times" said they found evidence of a zoning map that was altered specifically to allow the store to be built, where it otherwise would have been prohibited. the store was controversial because it was built near the famous pyramids that you see here. there's some 2,000 years old. there were large protests at the time which made national headlines in mexico. and

. >> all aboard! >> yep. mexico's probably the cheapest place on earth to make stuff to send stuff to the united states. and speaking of the rails, the best way to play this theme is with my new favorite railroad stock kansas city southern, ksu. at a time when many rails are struggling, kansas city southern is thriving, stock at $77 and change, just $6 off its highs. why, oh, why do i like this company so much? simple. geography. take a look at this map of the company's rail network, okay? kansas city southern is the new intercontinental railroad. except unlike the one you studied in school, it runs from north to south instead of east to west. it has 6,600-mile network, it's pretty much evenly divided between the united states and mexico and the network is only one interchange away from every single major market in north america. believe me when i tell you, this area is just booming. i go down there a lot and i cannot believe how strong it is. kansas city southern got into mexico in 1996 when the company won the option to privatize the mexican national railroad. that's the main lin
